Paul the Toadstool
My version of ‘Paul’ the amigurumi Toadie was finally completed this week. He can now be found in the mud with the dog, getting down and dirty with all the numerous critters in our garden…take a peep?
Pattern, yarn and other details can be found at the end of the post.
If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen some pics of Paul in the early stages… when he looked like this:
The Pattern: is by lalylala you can buy the patterns Here on etsy
I need to hook up the ‘house fly’ next.
The Yarn: Rowan pure wool dk bought from Butterfly Bright (apart from the face this was a stylecraft dk acrylic)
The Hook: 3.5, pattern advises a size 2. I like large fast projects.
My opinion: I changed some colours ie. grey instead of brown, and I embroidered the front in my own grassy design.
You may need to tighten up your tension if you are a looser crocheter.
I needed to completely concentrate on the pattern to get it right.
Overall a very well written pattern, with fabulous easy to follow illustrations to help along the way.
Go on and buy one?
